A hearty and delicious chili for all those cold wintery days. The smart taste pasta and beans are a great source of fiber and protein for your day!
1 pkg (about 16 oz.) 99% lean ground turkey
Chili Powder, Basil, Oregano, Nutmeg, Cumin (to taste)
1 Can Diced Tomatoes
1 small can Tomato Paste
1 Can red kidney beans
1 can Great Northern Beans
1/2 medium onion, chopped
6 oz. Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta
With the stove on medium to low heat, add chili powder and spices and stir. Stir in diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Add enough water to cover everything in the pot. Let cook on medium heat for 20 minutes.
Add pasta (and more water if needed), bring contents to a slight boil and then cook on medium heat for 20 more minutes.
Add Kidney Beans, Great Northern Beans, and chopped onion. Allow chili to cook another 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
This makes about 8 bowls of chili (The bowls I use probably hold about 2 cups each.)
* Note: You can make this much more quickly if you add all the ingredients (in the order mentioned), but without waiting the 20 minutes in between each time. The chili will turn out just fine, but it may not be as flavorful as if you allow it to sit. It always tastes even better the next day!
Number of Servings: 8

The chili is very good. I had to make some assumptions when makeing it. The recipe leaves out a few things, like measurements for the spices (I can't do "to taste" when it comes to something other than salt and peper) and whether or not to drain the beans. I drained them and it seemed to work. - 3/1/10
